Joy, Faith, and Resilience in the University

An academic vocation is full of unique challenges, demands and trials. As Christian faculty, what might it mean for us to live with joy and resilience in the midst of these challenges? Come join us as we explore this question with the Epistle of James as our guide. The Northeast Faculty Conference is a wonderful opportunity to:

  • Enjoy in-depth study and discussion of God’s Word
  • Learn from and with Christians in academia
  • Worship the Lord together
  • Network with colleagues from around the region
  • Get away from the busyness of campus life and enjoy time for refreshment, play, and spiritual encouragement

We have drafted a tentative schedule which is subject to change as planning continues.
